Detroit -  Tesla  CEO Elon Musk says the company plans to unveil an electric semi-truck in September. 2017

Musk tweeted the announcement on Thursday. He offered no other details about the semi, such as whether it will be equipped with Tesla's partially self-driving Autopilot mode.

Musk also said the company plans to unveil a pickup truck in 18 to 24 months.

Tesla currently sells two electric vehicles, the Model S sedan and Model X SUV. Its lower-cost Model 3 electric car is due out by the end of this year.
